If the G25 works with this, I might have to cave in as well.

meh, I say fuck off to prologue... give me the real game that Polyphony Digital has been promising for for last 3 years!!! WITH ONLINE FOR FUCK SAKES!!!

Also, give me DualShock 3 controllers that don't feel like complete pieces of shit like those Six-Axis ones. That being said... it's rumored to be in March 2008 so not too much longer.

Anywhere I've seen says April 17 is the big day for GT5:Prologue.

But yes, it would be REALLY friggin nice to have the full release. I don't know why anyone should have to pay for a reeeally scaled down preview.

i don't get it... GT5 Prologue is just a mini version of the game? So when is the actual release date for GT4?

Oh, and i heard there was a proce drop in XBox's... so does that mean PS3's comin down as well??

GT4's been out for a while..
I think GT5 is due out very late '08 or spring '09.. not sure.

There have been rumours of a PS3 price drop, but they keep getting denied. No activity in the last couple of weeks. I expect that with the strength of Blu-Ray, and the increase in PS3 sales, there won't be a PS3 price drop for a little while yet.

wtf? I thought Prologue was 39.99 anywhere. It's not the full game, so why the hell would anyone pay more than that?

So I did some checking online. GT5: Prologue is supposed to be $40. If you look at any online stores in the US ( Best Buy, Future Shop, etc), you will see it listed for $39.99.
HOWEVER, if you check on the Best Buy Canada or Future Shop Canada websites, it's listed for $69.99. Yes, an additional 75%!
I've emailed Best Buy Canada's customer service to see how they can possibly justify that. Pretty sure I could order it from the US and it would still be cheaper after shipping, etc.

Yeah I haven't gotten a response yet, but it's on both best buy's and future shop's websites for that price. That's what the final GT5 should cost, but not Prologue.

eb Games has it for $39.99 though.

i could see best buy/futureshop overcharging. they like to pull that crap. remember when the wii first came out, they were charging +$10 compared to everyone else and they knew they could get away with it because of the demand. and during boxing day they were adding fees to the laptops that were on sale +$100 for "recovery discs".

Well... I think the only upside to buying the disc is you get some behind the scenes movie or something... big woop... watch that once maybe and it will likely go torrent anyway. Just buy GT5P over the PSN... download and you're soleeed. Wray have you seen any word on what the PSN will sell it for? I am sure not a penny less than the boxed version. Bastards.
